i enjoyed chilling out after a show and/or trip with a little Hendrix

So down and down and down and down
and down and down we go.
Hurry my darling we mustn't be late
for the show.
Neptune champion games to an aqua
world is so very dear.
"Right this way," smiles a mermaid,
I can hear Atlantis full of cheer.

OK, I've been pondering this topic and my answer is none. I remember sitting wide-eyed on a cooler and listening to music from other vehicles. But mostly I remember the murmur of nearby heads conversing and the crunching of passing feet and the calls of eager vendors. Grinning ear to ear and sharing my smiles with passers-by.

It WAS a scene, man.

Over the years my brother and I created seventy-five "acid tapes" meant to be played while under the influenfce. The music on these 90 or 100 min. cassettes was varied from wild to mellow.
I happen to have one here from the later years and it's hardly the best but this is one of what we would have grooved to through the long night to dawn. Along with plenty of Dead of course. And the odd album. Tapes were more fun because you never knew what was coming next, A Love Supreme by Coltrane or Autumn Almanac by the Kinks or Machine Gun by Jimi Hendrix or I Wanna Be adored by Stone Roses or You Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave by Dave mason or All Blues by Miles Davis.

You get the idea. These tapes have been catalogued and databased. There are at least 75 but more than likely around 80 now.
